Rajgarh: On Wednesday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath targeted the opposition Congress for not doing work in the favor of farmers and said that the party should be disbanded as wished by Mahatma Gandhi. Yogi even referred Digvijay Singh and revealed that his name came up in a Naxal-related case.

“The Congress has not worked in the interest of the farmers. Therefore, it should be disbanded as wished by Mahatma Gandhi. This is your responsibility,” Adityanath said while addressing a gathering at Narsinghar in this district of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh. “A big Congress leader’s name has cropped up in a case connected to Naxals. Terrorism and Naxalism are a threat to the nation and the Congress’s sympathy for them is condemnable,” he added.

The Pune police earlier seized a letter which was in connection with the Elgar Parishad probe. The letter referred to a mobile number which belonged to Singh, Pune police earlier said. Besides this, two days ago, Congressman Digvijay Singh dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to take action against him in the Elgar Parishad case.

Adityanath said that it has been 15 years now since Naxalism started emerging in Madhya Pradesh. “Madhya Pradesh was then known for potholed roads, unemployment, but after the BJP came to power, it turned the state into a developed one,” he said.

On the other hand, Yogi Adityanath talking about the upcoming Assembly elections affirmed that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would not only win the elections from Madhya Pradesh but from all the five states including Chhattisgarh.

Adityanath also justified the decision of renaming Allahabad as Prayagraj. He said that the old name of the city was not correct and because of the confluence of the holy rivers of Saraswati, Yamuna, and Ganga there was a need to change the name.

The Assembly elections in the 230-member Madhya Pradesh Assembly will take place on November 28, while the results for the same will be announced on December 11.
